Spiritual Living in Tumultuous Times

Thursday, May 27th 8:00p to 9:00pEven as we tentatively emerge from the year of COVID, we may still feel weary, beleaguered and frightened by the state of our country and our world. In the midst of so much conflict, change, hate and anger, it is very difficult to sustain ourselves in healthy ways, not to mention discern how to make a difference in our lives. In this interactive session, we will explore middot/qualities of soul that can support us in living healthy, sacred and productive lives in challenging times. Rabbi Amy Eilberg is the first woman ordained as a Conservative rabbi by the JTS. She serves as a peace and justice educator, spiritual director, and kindness coach, and is nationally known for her work in these areas and in Jewish healing.
